Grants to USA institutions of higher education for programs that train researchers in eligible fields. Funding is intended to support training programs and projects that assist PhD and other researchers in rehabilitation related fields in order to enhance the lives of people with disabilities in the area of employment.

The purpose of NIDILRR's ARRT program, which is funded through the Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects and Centers Program, is to provide advanced research training and experience to individuals with doctorates, or similar advanced degrees, who have clinical or other relevant experience. ARRT projects train rehabilitation researchers, including researchers with disabilities, with particular attention to research areas that support the implementation and objectives of the Rehabilitation Act and improve the effectiveness of services authorized under the Rehabilitation Act. ARRT projects must provide advanced research training to eligible individuals to enhance their capacity to conduct high-quality multidisciplinary disability and rehabilitation research to improve outcomes for individuals with disabilities in one of NIDILRR's three major domains of health and function, employment, and community living and participation. This particular funding opportunity announcement invites applications for ARRT grants in NIDILRR's employment domain. 

ARRT projects must (1) recruit and select candidates for advanced research training; (2) provide a training program that includes didactic and classroom instruction, is multidisciplinary, and emphasizes scientific methodology, and may involve collaboration among institutions; (3) provide research experience, laboratory experience, or its equivalent, in a community-based research setting, and a practicum that involves each individual in research and in practical activities with organizations representing individuals with disabilities; (4) provide academic mentorship or guidance and opportunities for scientific collaboration with qualified researchers at the host university and other appropriate institutions; and (5) provide opportunities for participation in the development of professional presentations and publications and for attendance at professional conferences and meetings, as appropriate for the individual’s field of study and level of experience.

ARRT projects must provide training to individuals for at least one academic year, unless a longer training period is necessary to ensure that each trainee is qualified to conduct independent research upon completion of the course of training, and must require trainees to devote at least 80 percent of their time to the activities of the training program during the training period.

 NOTE: An applicant should consult NIDILRR’s Long-Range Plan for Fiscal Years 2018-2023 (the Plan) when preparing its application. The Plan is organized around the following outcome domains: (1) community living and participation; (2) health and function; and (3) employment.
